Recipe - Homemade Steak and Gorgonzola Pizza
I think this serves more as inspiration than a recipe. Use this as a start and make a pizza that suits you and your taste. I won't bother with measurements etc, just use the force Luke!

It's not like the pizza council will come and drag your sorry ass in front of the pizza court or something.
Why make your own pizza? Why not? You save money, get it exactly as you want and you know that it is made with love using fresh ingredients.

When the doorbell rang Diana Ross stood outside...

However - whatever you do, please don't use one of those pre-made pizza bases. They are pure evil, sprung directly from the loins of the devil!
Something that made this pizza taste even better was to eat it whilst watching the mighty Arsenal crush Porto in Champions League. ;)

Red onion, halved and then sliced

Heat the oven to about 220c - 240c.
In the meantime prepare the pizza dough as per the instructions in your recipe/on the package.
When the dough is ready and is rolled into a circle and placed on a baking tray or similar it's time for the fun stuff.
Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce on the pizza base. Scatter the garlic, followed by the mozzarella and some ground pepper. Place out the red pepper, onion and steak slices. Finish off with the crumbled gorgonzola.
Chuck it all into the oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and gained a healthy golden brown colour. Remove from the oven, cut into slices and...
